Every undergraduate and taught postgraduate student has a Personal Tutor, a member of the teaching staff who provides academic guidance and support. Your Personal Tutor is there to help you make the most of your studies as an individual as you progress through your university career.
Aims of the Personal Tutor System
The Personal Tutor system will provide you with a named member of academic staff, your Personal Tutor, who will support you throughout your time at the University, giving you academic support and a route to pastoral support. You, as a Tutee, will work with your Personal Tutor to reflect on your academic performance, how this contributes to your aspirations and helps you to engage as a member of a community of learners.
What can you expect from your Personal Tutor and what is expected as a tutee?
Personal Tutor tools
Your electronic student record is accessible through MyEd. It includes information on the programme you’re enrolled on, courses you’re registered on, and marks you’ve received.
School and College support
Within each School and College there are a number of other roles working in partnership with Personal Tutors to make sure the personal tutor system works for you.
School Personal Tutoring Statements
Every School has a Personal Tutoring Statement explaining how the system operates.* Your School’s Personal Tutoring Statement will explain the purpose and timing of meetings and will provide you with details of key contacts within your particular School.
